CITY DECISIONS 2-1-17 LMS
The Salmon City Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) has recommended that an annexation request from the Beers Sub Division be accepted, and the Salmon City Council has concurred.
When the subject was introduced to the council at its February 1st meeting, City Clerk Mary Benton explained the process to be followed if the request is to go forward. She said the P&Z has had a hearing on the annexation application and made its recommendation. If the council accepts the recommendation the public hearing process and draft development agreement with Beers will be initiated. Once those steps have been completed an annexation ordinance process will begin.
The city councilís vote to approve the P&Z recommendation was unanimous.
A vote of unanimous approval for a special event is expected to bring over 300 bicycle riders to Salmon on August 8th and 9th. The Ride Idaho Organization first approached the city with its camping request in September of last year. In addition to the number of riders the group is projecting around 40 support vehicles and about 250 tents. The gathering will take place at City Park and will utilize the Sacajawea Center for its events.
Another unanimous council vote gave approval for Sacajawea Center Director Lin Gray to continue to serve as the cityís representative on the Local Option Tax Commission.
The council also approved a three-year contract for haying and irrigation operations at Salmonís Sacajawea Center. The $2050.00 contract went to the sole bidder, Thomas Whitson. The contract will take effect on March 1st of this year and continue through November 1st, 2019.
